Now with the raw material out there my first suggestion is to remove "loitering" as a union-level misdemeanor.

I think that the offences would only cover those attacking the government, the society and such... everything else would be covered by common law.

CRIMES AGAINST SENTIENCE

Genocide =p
Apartheid
Slavery
Etc
etc

CRIMES AGAINST PEACE

War crimes
Treason in times of war

Lesser disturbances

CRIMES AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT

Treason
Crimes against Executive and Agencies
Crimes against the Senate and the Laws (deleting an act intentionally is an offence for example)
Crimes against the Administration of Justice




Or something like that... I think it was what we thought of doing, Allot and the rest of us, when we began the project. If have a consise criminal code, we'll never get through.
